Trips to Venice Beach and City Walk

Of all the hot spots located in sunny Los Angeles, California, two of the most renowned spots can be found in Venice Beach and Universal’s City Walk. Venice Beach is not only a growing community, but an escape from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood-a mere 20 minutes away from the city, and yet, it feels almost like another world entirely. Mel Lifshitz recently took a trip to Venice and experienced first-hand the unique culture of the area. Places such as this exemplify the unique diversity of Southern California.

By contrast, Mel Lifshitz also visited the famed Universal City Walk, located right outside Universal Studios, and an escape of a different form entirely. City Walk is loud, bright, and vibrant, its own futuristic metropolis, equipped with arcades, restaurants, bars, clubs, and a giant AMC Theater, it’s hard to run out of things to do, and even harder to go to for just one day. City Walk also boasts their own attractions and shows, its own style entirely. If Venice Beach can be called a near-perfect day trip, it’s the City Walk that can claim the night. Both of these places fall under the same category-as places any seasoned tourist won’t want to miss!
